Dear Friends,

We hope that this finds you healthy and happy in what has often been called "these difficult times". The constant news feeds tell us of health, environmental and political strife from around the world. Despite this important but often negative rhetoric, we carry on. We hope that we are creating positive dialogue in bringing the community together through music. To this end, VGS strives to promote barrier-free unity, collaboration, and diversity in all its activities. We also stand in solidarity with those seeking more awareness and respectful acknowledgement of human rights around the globe. Have a fun, safe and relaxing summer.

We are currently planning our summer and fall programming - stay tuned!

We would like to thank you all for another eventful year.
It is wonderful to see the VGS community expanding.
